2015 was a great year for Renault, as the French manufacturer and the brand who names the Group that includes also Dacia, Samsung and partners with Nissan. Around the world, registrations saw a further rise of 3.3% for a total of 2.8 million vehicles. The Group's worldwide market share now stands at 3.2%. The Renault brand remains the number one French brand in the world and Dacia has set a new sales record.

The Renault brand realised a 10.2% increase in registrations to 1,613,499 vehicles, for a market share of 10.1%. Renault is also the leader in the electric vehicle market in Europe and, for the 18th consecutive year, is the leader in the LCV market.

The Group increased sales in all countries in the region, with particularly strong performances in Spain (+22.3%), the United Kingdom (+17.7%) and Italy (+18%), with a record market share of 9.1%.

Outside Europe, despite the economic crises in Russia and Latin America, the Group held steady and recorded market share gains in the Africa, Middle East and India and Eurasia regions.

Launches of 2015 drive strong customer demand : 49,016 Kadjars have already been sold and there were 20, 930 registrations for the New Espace, representing three times more than its previous version during the same period in 2014.

In Eurasia, the Group's market share increased by 1.6 points to 11.9%, in particular due to the Group's momentum in Turkey (+21.7%), where a new sales record was set. This growth offset the consequences of the economic crisis in Russia, where the market slumped by more than 35% and Groupe Renault’s registrations fell by 38.1%.

In Asia Pacific, the level of sales in Korea, the Group’s largest market in the region, stabilised following significant growth in 2014. In China, priority has been given to the preparation of the launch of the Chinese version of the Kadjar, the first vehicle locally produced by the Dongfeng Renault joint venture.
